Rendering at 12 fps?

Hi guys. I was asked to render an animation at 12fps so it would look kinda like stop motion. But when i change the settings of the scene my animation keys reduce to half so the animation becomes faster. What i need to do is to make that frame 1 and 2 are the same, 3 and 4 are the same, etc, so my animation would last the same time but it would look as stop motion. Im also posting this message at the 3d max forum because we need to use both softwares. (the guy that was before me worked in 3d max, i work in Maya, but i have to make some changes to his work, and it's killing me!)

Set the frame step in the render global to 2 instead of 1. If you are animating at 24 frames a second this means it renders every other frame, thus it renders at 12 fps. I believe it's called frame step but it could be called slightly different. Hope you able to figure it out.

Thanks!!! I saw that in 3D Max there was an option to render every nth frame, i was looking for something like that in Maya.
